Everybody needs a little MMA- Monk Martial Arts!
These guys were probably enamored with GSP's beatdown of BJ Penn & wanted to show their stuff. Maybe they had a seminary course called, 'MMA- Crusading in the Modern Era'.
Sadly it highlights the reality of Sunday's post about wanting control, about needing to get our own way.
That never happens to you or I, or in our churches, does it?!
What's the the antidote you ask?
1 Peter 4:8-11
Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless—cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God's words; if help, let it be God's hearty help. That way, God's bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he'll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything—encores to the end of time. Oh, yes!
